Hyatt Hotels Corporation has officially opened the Hyatt Place Dubai/Wasl District as the third property under Hyatt’s select-service brand portfolio in the United Arab Emirates. 

The 202-room hotel joins Hyatt Place Dubai/Al Rigga and Hyatt Place Dubai/Baniyas Square and is the 10th Hyatt hotel in the UAE overall. 

“The decision to introduce a third Hyatt Place property stems from its seamless integration into the city’s contemporary appeal, prioritizing consistent development,” Kurt Straub, Hyatt's VP of operations, Middle East, Africa and South West Asia, said in a statement. “We’re seeing an increased guest demand for our select-service portfolio and as such are meeting these demands across the UAE and Saudi Arabia. We plan to continue to expand our brand presence across the Middle East as part of our pipeline of development for the region.”
